Hi Guys
I sent a post I think last week after talking to my cheap mechanic guy 30
euro an hour. It was to ask about certain things that I might need with the
OME lift something to do with the steering. There you go I cant even
remember what the names of the parts are thats how bad I am. But if any of
you can remember and know waht I was talking about that would be grand.

Wow, what a description you give John :)
I think you were asking about caster correction and drop blocks. In
theory you need caster correction but I have found that for a modest
lift it doesn't really make any detectable difference. Sway bar drop
blocks - without them your articulation will be a little shorter so
you're more likely to have a wheel lose contact with the ground when off
roading. On normal surfaces it will make no real difference not having
them.
Best regards,
Jon.

John, come on now get the grey matter warmed up !! Have a look at the
Slee Site where you will find an explanation of the caster correction
kit. Reading past posts opinion is split 50 / 50 whether a moderate
lift like you intend needs the correction kit.

Hi,
I have no idea what you were talking about ;-), however....
With some of the higher lifts it is recommended to use a caster
correction kit to rotate the axle so that the back in line, negating
the twisting effects of the lift.
Generally with the 50mm standard lift the correction kit isn't needed,
so I wouldn't worry about it.
